What The Raiders Learned

The Raiders were taught a valuable lesson which was that every team should learn when playing the Kansas City Chiefs. When the opportunity is there, grab a lead against them and capitalize on it. Don’t make critical mistakes or come away empty handed. Additionally, playing two consistent halves of football is a must and giving the game away to Mahomes in the second half will come back to haunt you.
